The first 14 letters of the Hebrew alphabet served as naming scheme for Philippe Nore's second work on Petcord, "Nahash". The French sound artist explores a variety of timbres in his electroacoustic miniatures ranging from chopped rhythm fragments to bleak resonant drones, from harsh feedback to gentle analogue warmth. There is a lot of variety in both dynamics and timbres with changes in pitch, textures and tone sequences defining the main characteristics of a track. Compared to "Quinze", NP's vocabulary on "Nahash" extends to finer nuances and spatial refinements. Consequently, the songs tend to increase in playtime, but also to surprise with unexpected turns.
